Can I really believe this kid, he’s kinda chubby and he hasn’t made his bed!
and no, I didn't take the photo, friend did!
OMG, I saw Cyndi Lauper in concert last night and I must say it was more an experience than it was a concert. Wearing a bright red wig, Cyndi Lauper metamorphosed throughout the night into teacher, student, philosopher, artist, mother , wife, musician, humanitarian, comedian and serious blues artist. Some fans must have been scratching their heads when she burst on stage and began belting out blues numbers from her latest album. It was a far cry from her 80’s pop persona. However when she walked off stage and into the audience and onto the seats she had them eating out of her hands.
Perth was a tough crowd, but she worked it hard to unravel the conservative politeness which has seeped into our music culture (we don’t stand up and dance no more). By nights end however she had everyone, and I mean everyone, on their feet and breaking into song.
When she finally sang Girls Just Want To Have Fun (a song she must now dread) Lauper split the crowd into two sections and had them singing the chorus in rounds like some huge karaoke party. When an exhausted Lauper left the stage the crowd was still buzzing over what they had witnessed.
The biggest compliment for Cyndi Lauper would have to have been the queues of people after the show lining up to get their hands on her latest album.
Psst I’m not sure if the crowd fully appreciated the musicians Lauper had bought with her on tour but Charlie Musselwhite, Michael Toles and Steve Potts are R&B legends.
When something doesn’t look right, you should take heed. The new search engine Cuil, is friggin NOT. Firstly, use a “real word” so my spell checker can get a day off, secondly use a friendly background so I don’t feel as though I am about to enter a porn site and thirdly test before you launch dahh!
This is how much I like Cuil, I would go to a public library before ever going back onto Cuil to search for something. You know we love hating Google, but if this is our best alternative we are in deep cyberspace. A library without an index system is like, well Cuil! Lets just hope they aren’t using the public to sort out all the glitches!!! Lucky I didn’t buy any shares in this dot com.
Apprentice search engine…..YOU’RE FIRED !
I am nominating Cuil for the 2008 Friggin Loon Award.
